This first major study of any Chapakuran language offers a unique, comprehensive grammatical description of Wari, covering syntax, negation, morphology, phonology, ideophone/interjection and lexicon.
This grammar is especially important as Wari and all the Chapakuran languages are currently threatened with extinction; the known speakers of these languages, natives of Western Brazil and Eastern Bolivia, number less than 2,000.
